AN early morning vehicle fire in Acrefair is believed to have been started deliberately.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service received a call just before 1.40am on Sunday morning reporting a car ablaze in Bowers Road, Acrefair.

One crew from Johnstown attended the scene and used a hose reel jet to extinguish the flames, which caused 30 per cent heat damage to the interior of the car.

A spokesman for the service told the Leader the incident is believed to have been caused by deliberate ignition.
